Content descriptions

General Note: Originally published in Spanish as Divorcio en el aire: Barcelona : Random House Mondadori, 2013.
Summary, etc.: "There's a lot about Joan-Marc that his estranged second wife doesn't know--but which he now sets out to tell her. He begins with the failure of his first marriage to an American woman named Helen, describing a vacation they took in a last-ditch attempt to salvage their once-passionate romance. The recollection of this il-fated trip triggers in him a series of flashbacks through which he narrates his life story, hopscotching between Barcelona and Madrid. Starting from pivotal moments in his childhood--his earliest sexual encounters, his father's suicide, his mother's emotional decline--he moves through the years to the origin of his relationship with Helen and the circumstances surrounding its deterioration."-- Provided by publisher.
